Is the M16 built by Colt?
Though they did not develop it, for a long time Colt was also primarily responsible for all AR-15. And M16 rifle production, as well as many derivatives of those firearms. The most successful and famous of these are numerous M16 carbines, including the Colt Commando family, and the M4 carbine .
The lineage of these enigmatic twins dates to 1957, when the .223 popped up as an experimental cartridge for what would become the M16 infantry rifle. Working with Gene Stoner, Bob Hutton at Guns & Ammo magazine paired a 55-gr. bullet with a case a tad longer than a .222’s cartridge case. The tiny missile exited at 3,250 fps and met a retained-velocity spec of supersonic flight to 500 yards.
The M16 rifle and the M4 carbine are semi-automatic and automatic weapons that originated in the U.S. They are issued to U.S. troops and North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) forces worldwide. The M16 was the standard U.S. military forces weapon from the mid-1960s and onward, but is being replaced by the M4, a smaller, more versatile carbine.
